4 stars FRUUPP were one of Ireland's greatest bands and produced a number of great albums in the 70's with "Modern Masquerades" being one of my personal picks of the litter. Musically these guys were highly talented offering some creative song writing and instrumentation. On this album the lush keyboard work of Stephen Houston stands out with some pretty huge mellotron and keyboard passages and atmospheres. Peter Farrelly's bass and vocals are at times simply stunning, delivering the perfect mix of vocals and harmonization. Martin Foye's drums and Vincent Mc Cusker's guitars blend all the music together and add some great musicianship. Their overall sound is not unlike "Trespass" circa GENESIS, but with a much heavier folk influence. An interesting note is that this album was also produced by KING CRIMSON's Ian McDonald.
